Napoli vs Sassuolo
Italy – Serie A
Date: Saturday, 30 April 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Napoli have been one of the best teams in the competition all through the campaign, and at one point in the season it was thought that they even had a shot to secure the title.
As of now they are placed third in the table and their objective would be to secure a top-four finish at any cost. The reason being they have prioritized a ticket to the Champions league next season.
Going on, it needs to be mentioned that they are currently struggling for form a bit. But it does not feel as if their top-four hopes are under threat. However former champions Juventus are giving them a tough chase for a podium finish.
Likely a win is a must for the team.
Meanwhile Sassuolo are on a losing streak and are conceding goals in huge numbers. They also do not have any chance to make it to Europe next season. And since they do not have anything left to play for, their intensity has dropped quite a bit.
They have also struggled on the road all through this current campaign and most importantly they have a poor record against this opponent over the years.
Considering these observations, expect a win for Napoli at their home this Saturday.
